Just when I thought everything was coming under control, Himself started coughing and sneezing yesterday (didn't stop him going to the pub though!).
Last night, he decided to go into the spare room to avoid me being woken up by him coughing. So I had a blissful sleep on my own with only the older labrador for company.
This morning, he has stayed in bed whilst I have walked the older lab, fed all the animals, got my breakfast and generally did all the chores required to tidy up the castle to greet the new day. Boy , is it cold this morning but fine.
Why is it that for the last 10 days, I have carried on doing everything I normally do despite thinking that a day in bed would be just the job to make me feel better, but the moment a sneeze strikes, Himself has taken up his bed and is staying there! It must be one of the mysteries of the Universe. I carry on coughing and sneezing, cooking meals, working etc. without any respite or help.
What's the betting that come lunchtime today, he will be up and out and off to the club to meet up with friends for a lunchtime drink! Although I must admit he did cancel his golf this morning so a bit of common sense broke through . I also told him this was just the sort of weather to turn a cold into pneumonia. Very sympathetic me! lol. And I expect he will go to work tomorrow and give it to everyone else there instead of being sensible and taking the day off. The office won't fall down without him either although he thinks it will.
Well that's the update from me. We went to the Xmas Quiz last night and won it and brought home a bottle of champagne. So we will share that with the friend who was on our small team and her husband who was doing the bar, when they next come round. My friend is waiting to see the specialist about her knees as she has been told it is her kneecap causing the problem - she has been in such a lot of pain and had difficulty walking as well and cannot stand for long. Don't we all know that feeling!
I believe I heard a stirring from the man upstairs who is giving a good impression of being a corpse - will wait and see if anything materialises!
